Those other Christians are such a disfrace.

In an early post I pointed out that when you hear a conservative start spamming the word “truth”, you need to be prepared for a pretty impressive pile of wrong.  Here’s a comment from TruthOne on my post about a North Carolina church refusing to do weddings until gays are allowed to marry.

Tris is a disfrace To Christian testimony. The Church is calles To be Holy not perverted in low-life animal perversión sexual life. This goes against everything the Bible teaches.

Hrm, you have a point.  Can you send a memo to god that he needs to come down here and clear this up?  Because a lot of Christians, who want to abide by his will, are bickering about what his will actually is.

Or, even better, he could have designed human beings without the tendency to arrive at their own moral conclusions and then ascribe them to god.

Oh, and it’s a real perversion when somebody thinks they have the right to tell another person who they can or can’t love because of what a bunch of people scribbled down a few thousand years ago.  When you think that’s noble, but that someone devoting their life to another person is a perversion, you’ve been twisted into an immoral mess by your religion and you can’t even see it.

Do what you think the bible calls you to do.  Nobody is stopping you.  But no matter how powerful a god may be, there comes a point when you must recognize that his will is so diametric to humanity’s interests that there is no moral option but to defy him.  When he stokes love in somebody and then stokes the fires of hell for those who act on that love, it’s time to be grateful he doesn’t exist.
